We are following up the inspirational performance art fundraiser by Sulong Theatre with a casual mixer/discussion around the themes raised by Operation Lifeboat.
– How ‘natural’ are the disasters hitting the Philippines?
– How does it link to Canada’s economic and migration interests?
– How can we as Canadians help?
Speakers will include:
Yshmael Cabana of Anakbayan-Toronto on government inaction in its urban planning.
Alex Felipe of BAYAN-Canada on Canadian mining interests. Alex’s work on Canadian mining in the Philippines won an honourable mention in the Canadian Magazine Awards.
… and more …
630-9pm: Discussion (dinner/drinks still available)
9pm onwards: Event ends, but people can stay and hang out if they want.
